Red Melon Sword

Product Description

Echinodorus barthii is similar to other Echinodorus variations in its easiness to keep. This variation will provide you with great contrast or red and green leaves to provide a natural look and great hiding place for your tank inhabitants.

This species of plant thrives best using a nutrient rich soil with additional fertilization (our preference is the Brightwell line of soil which can be found by clicking here). If not provided  with enough nutrients, it can decrease the ability of this plant to spread. The use of CO2 in the aquarium will increase the plants ability to grow but is not necessary.

*Rapid changes in tank parameters can result in the melting of the plant

You will receive one (1) potted plant, Portion size may vary. 


Scientific Name: Echinodorus barthii

Light Requirements: Medium/High

Care Level: Medium

Note: Please do additional research on your plant to ensure its health. This plant can be grown emersed. 

 *All Plants may contain snails or snail eggs. We keep them in all of our tanks for the benefits they provide.*

All plants came well packaged with fish

I ordered several small plants for my nano aquariums and 3 Clown Killifish. All were amazingly packaged.

As usual, great service!

I only bought one plant, a Red Melon Sword and one fish, a Pea Puffer. Both arrived in excellent condition and health. I did not buy a heater pack because I live in Florida, but we had a, non-typical cold front and they included the heater pack for the Puffer anyway! Absolutely cannot say enough good things about this company!
